HyEnergy's Creation

Ian Williamson founded HyEnergy back in 2014 because he felt there was a gap in the market for a commercially focussed consultancy within the hydrogen sector. From our beginnings in the industrial gas sector, we have grown to work with many sector stakeholders – including industry, local/regional public sector organisations and national governments. He rapidly found customers who valued such skills and the range of services offered extended.  Today we have a core team and a group of experienced associate consultants who help flex our capabilities as need demand.

HyEnergy's Future

HyEnergy believes hydrogen will play a key role in creating a clean sustainable future. We have the necessary know-how and skill set to engage with stakeholders who are new to hydrogen and its potential. We help transfer world class knowledge into organisations to realise hydrogen’s potential for products and projects.  We will continue to identify opportunities within the market, participating ourselves where we feel we can add significant value. Our first such venture is the establishment of our TransStore company.
